Scholastic Literacy Partnerships serves to enhance the efforts of all those working directly or indirectly with children, enabling them to support literacy by getting books into the hands of the children they serve. Not just any books, but books that interest kids, that delight them, that they will love.

About Scholastic Literacy Partnerships

Becoming a Scholastic Literacy Partner demonstrates a commitment to supporting literacy as a means of bettering the lives of children. It also entitles you to privileges including deep discounts on the largest variety of books, access to Scholastic resources and services, and a dedicated partner to support your goals.

We are honored to partner with a wide array of mission-driven organizations in an effort to build text-rich environments and immerse children in the joy of reading. The work and support you provide is critical and offers more opportunities for children to have access to books necessary to enhance their literacy development. We can help you create a book distribution program or enrich your current one by:

  • Building home libraries to foster a culture of literacy
  • Providing access to age-appropriate books and collections in your communities
  • Stopping the “summer slide” with summer reading take-home packs
  • Empowering families to build their children’s literacy skill with reading practice every night in their homes

Scholastic is home to an unparalleled roster of acclaimed authors and literacy experts, as well as literacy initiatives at every age level, from birth through high school, backed by research-validated results.

Community is so central to children’s literacy development. It’s not just the school. It’s the school, the community, the home, and all those resources that come together to really ensure that children become literate.
